Bangkok Airways started in 1968 and a company known as Sahakol
Air, which was initially set an air taxi service operating a Tradewind,
a twin-engine, ten-seat aircraft during the Vietnam War. The assignments
came from Overseas International Construction Company (OICC),
an American company known as United States Operations Mission
(USOM) and a number of other organizations engaged in oil and
natural gas exploration in Thailand.
Bangkok Airways now flies to a total of 20 destinations in eight
countries: Bangkok, Samui, Phuket, Sukhothai, Pattaya Beach (Utapao),
Chiang Mai, Trat in Thailand. In Cambodia, we fly to Phnom Penh
and Angkor Wat (Siem Reap). We also fly to Jinghong, Xi'an, Guilin,
Hong Kong, Zhengzhou, Hangzhou, Shenzhenin in China, Luang Prabang
in Laos, Yangon in Myanmar, Singapore and Hiroshima in Japan.
When choosing new destinations, Bangkok Airways invariably considers
cities with rich cultures and historically important sites, which
are not easily accessible to the everyday traveller. This underlines
their commitment to help local tourism industries develop their
full potential and to promote the local heritage.
Their departure lounge at Bangkok Airport is equivalent to First
Class or Business Lounges at other airports. The difference is
their lounge (Domestic Terminal) is available to all their passengers.
